The Rossoneri lost after 304 days and 27 consecutive useful results in the league, Donnarumma and teammates re-discover the bitter taste of defeat. However, as Gazzetta dello Sport wrote today, this slip does not reduce the Rossoneri. the evidence offered against the reigning champions strengthens the convictions and the confidence of Pioli’s team, which can be there in the top four all the way to the end.

Despite the defections and the strength of the opponent, the young Milan players remained in the game for a long time and confirmed their qualities. There is no time to break down, given that on Saturday the team will be back on the pitch again. The next challenge for Milan, amid their current emergency is facing Torino at the San Siro.
